Law catches up with fine dodger

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A LOCHGILP­HEAD fine dodger paid up to £300 for penal­ties he owed af­ter hav­ing his bank ac­count frozen.

The un­named man was orig­i­nally found guilty of two counts of driv­ing with­out in­surance at Lochgilp­head Jus­tice of the Peace Court.

The Scot­tish Courts and Tri­bunals Ser­vice (SCTS) can re­cover un­paid fines through freez­ing bank ac­counts and ar­rest­ing wages.

Ef­fec­tive

SCTS chief op­er­a­tions of­fi­cer David Fraser said: ‘Fines en­force­ment teams con­tinue to be highly ef­fec­tive in se­cur­ing un­paid fines.

‘Fail­ure to pay, or to en­gage with our of­fi­cers, will result in sanc­tions be­ing taken in­clud­ing ar­rest­ment of wages, bank ac­counts, your car be­ing clamped or be­ing ar­rested when trav­el­ling abroad.’
